Wonderful Wednesday!

Letters of the week: i & n

We started our day watching a video about Terry Fox, to prepare us for our school Terry Fox Run tomorrow.  Thank you to those who have donated for the cause, we will still be accepting donations tomorrow.  The SK's also had fun showing off their clothes today with a fashion show! Each student had the opportunity to tell the class something special about what they were wearing and the rest of the class participated by saying nice things about what they were wearing.  To get us ready for Friday's Orange t-shirt Day, everyone in the class got to decorate an orange strip of paper that will be used to make a school link.  The orange link is to represent that" all children matter".

Inquiry into Language
The SK worked on the formation, sound and words that began with the letter Nn.  We listened and did the actions to the letter Nn Jolly Phonics song and practiced printing the upper, lower case letter and short word that began with the letter n.
Here is the link to the song:Jolly Phonics Song letter Nn

Ms. Yurin was back today, she had the students engaged in team building gross motor activities.

Mlle. Hou began teaching the students farm animals in French.

Unit of Inquiry
We continued to learn more about plants and its function with a matching activity.  We also shared our ideas in a class sharing circle.

Mr. Flower's had the students participate in a variety of songs and continued to teach them simple music notes.

Daily 5
The students read books with a partner or in a group.  I challenged the students and asked them to look for words that began with the letter n.

The SK's continued to learn more about estimating.  The students had to estimate how many red or green "apples" I had in my bag and worked on an activity in their Math books.
